Intention and Focus

· One min read

Intention and Focus sound like two parts that make up the idea of "Drive", as in ambition, direction.

And that's a good place to start when restarting something like this blog.

I went back to the start of why this blog exists. What is it for? Who is it for?

And that lead me to Seth Godin (again)...

Seth has written his blog every day without fail since 1995.

He's written 7000+ blog posts. And his motivation is to write something every day. Not because he feels like it, or is inspired, but that he turns up, and writes, every day.

What's my intention with this blog?

To practice and discipline myself to turn up and commit to writing something, anything and post it- every day.

What's my focus?

This may change, but I want to write about ideas. I don't want this to turn into a throwaway "dear diary" blog, but at least one idea I have in my mind at the time.

So that's it.

Seth made the decision "one time", and hasn't looked back since. At least one blog post a day, every day.
